Fast-change PET air conveying
NEWS FROM PACK EXPO: Whisper Side Flow™ (WSF) empty container air conveyance features 28/38 TwinTrak™, which permits a pneumatically operated fingertip changeover between 28- and 38-mm neck finishes at the flip of a switch and without change parts.
Thanks to a high-efficiency louver design that directs air to the shoulder area and sides of the container the WSF system uses 1-HP motors that can be spaced 24’ apart versus the industry standard 3- to 5-HP motors spaced at 15’–20’ lengths. That saves up to 80% in energy use versus other air conveyors according to Goldco Industries (Loveland CO).
